MediaCom......Sam Fisher has been hiding in the shadows for some time now. After a few teases and a few more delays, he's finally getting ready to take center stage once more. Though Splinter Cell: Conviction won't make it out in time for the holidays -- the official release date has been set for February 23, 2010 -- Ubisoft is starting to show more of the game. The latest look I got at Conviction came just prior to the opening of the Tokyo Game Show and this time Fisher had his iconic gear in tow. And that gear is even more badass than you remember it.
